Bad oral hygiene can ruin a nice evening, and just adding some mouthwash to your routine on Valentine’s Day is not enough to fix it. Instead, you need to make flossing a part of your day every single day.
Put Your Best Smile Forward
No one wants a partner with bad oral health. And choosing not to floss is one of the most common reasons why people have lackluster oral hygiene, even though the only real reason people avoid flossing is being lazy. Flossing does not take much time, and it helps make sure that you have the best possible smile. You may not think that flossing can actually make your teeth whiter, but having healthy gums is absolutely essential to keeping teeth white. And this cannot be done by simple brushing alone. Flossing is what gets the deep, hidden plaque that can do serious damage to your teeth. Floss is undoubtedly your best friend when it comes to maintaining good oral health.
The health benefits of flossing go much further than just a better-looking smile, and these benefits will surely be much appreciated by both you and your significant other. Because flossing removes plaque, it will help prevent your likelihood of having halitosis, or smelly breath. Flossing also prevents gum disease and tooth decay over the long run. It is safe to say that if your partner wants to be around you for years to come, they want your real teeth to be around as well.
Good oral health is essential for feeling and looking your best year-round, but it never hurts to have wake-up calls like Valentine’s Day to get you in top shape. Flossing should be a daily routine, not only for your health but for the health of your entire family. Now, that is something to love!
